Forum: GratefulDead Subject: who cares

about other websites? It started with that Deadhook crap. It's annoying when people come here and plug their site. If another site is so great then why advertise here? It's one thing to talk offline about other forums or whatever but when people come here and do it it's annoying. Ever worked at a job and a new person gets hired and proceeds to go on and on about how they used to do it at their other job implying they know everything? It's a drag. Whether it's some nice and " kind" ( puke ) person talking about their kindest place on the internet ( as if I'd want to go to Mr. Rogers website ) or somebody beating their deadhorse, it's all pretty much a put off for me ( unless it's a strictly download, music, video thing).

Don't get me wrong, I'm not the moderator here to tell everyone what they can and can't say, just putting my .02 cents in

oh back to the Dead, when I finish with those 68's any input on that 12-19-73 show? I Always found the mix on the DP1 to be real flat and sluggish. Is this one better soundwise? ( I know it's the complete show ).

I'm very concerned about DEADHOOK. I've been investigating that sight for quite some time. "Elsabong", which I now believe to be dead could simply get there balls in an up roar. Simple baby and homo jokes had him elimatated. WTF ?... does kind = smooth.

on another note, I carry 2 dollars in my bilfold, so if I ever caught the ole lady in bed w/ someone else, I can just give it to her mate and say "GO BUY YOURSELF A GOOD PIECE OF ASS.

.......and finally, if you were in close in a soild room with a 2 dollar bill w/o windows, door, venting...etc.

How would you escape ?

I agree completely! I used to be the Prime Minister at this really great site that was filled with really great people and it was all sunshine and rainbows...and maybe some doughnut holes too. And we really knew how to talk about the DEAD and never got it fights, and were civil, and all around Godlike. This was after a great revolution in which we oppressed masses had to take over from the decadent monarchy, which believe or not was made of up of this self appointed douche bag named Dire and this sweet kid that always plugged other sites, but it didn't seem to matter, and anyway, once we got rid of them it was no where but up, up and up some more.

Actually Shorthopper was correct.
When you are talking about a nickel, would you say
"a nickel is a 5 cent coin" or "a nickel is a 5 cents coin"? I hope that you would pick the first option.
I am a 5th grade english teacher and all of my students know that.

English Teacher huh? Do you teach your kids reading comprehension? You're right that you WOULD say a two cent coin if there were such a thing as there is a nickel as you mentioned.There isn't a 2 cent coin anymore therefore the plural is centS. Apparently cent is used as plural in some Southern and African American vernacular but is clearly not the correct use of the word. If you had actually researched this you would learn that.I guess you're used to talking to 11 year olds who assume everything you teach is correct.

I have a 5 cent coin and I have 5 cents which means I have the equivalent of 1 dime. Only one of my coins works in a nickle candy machine but 5 of them work in the penny machine.

great point jglynn. Also I'd like to note that if we add up your nickel and your five pennies not only do you have the equivelant of a dime you also have ten centS. Now, if you have a quarter a nickel and two dimes you would have 50 centS unless you were a rapper who decided to name themselves that in which case you might call yourself 50 CENT in the singular.

I'm glad you and I can see these obvious issues.

Ok - so you go out and have a drink with a couple of friends. Your bar bill comes to $25 so you each pitch in a ten, making thirty. The waiter gives you five dollar bills in change. You take back one dollar each and give the waiter two as a tip. So, you each put in ten and took one back, which means you each paid nine dollars. Three times nine equals 27. The waiter has two dollars, which added to the 27 makes a total of 29. Where's the other dollar?

"You take back one dollar each and give the waiter two as a tip."

OK, this doesn't add up...because I took one, AND I gave the waiter TWO, that means I only have SEVEN, not nine. How could we have combined to leave two without change? Plus, three gave two, meaning the waiter got six.

Clean up the English and continue. I'm lost.

No, Willie Wombat - from the five dollars returned (30-25) each drinker takes one and the waiter gets the other two. You do not put in another two apiece.

OK, but it says "you take one AND give two"...Is it the Royal We that gives two?

So, how much do I give? Two? Or, 2/3 = a fraction? As some of my students have said, "I don't DO fractions!"

Once I know this I can figure it out...I think.

hmmm, tricky. being that I only spent $9 I shouldn't be too drunk to figure this out. It's not $9 each. It's 9.33333 each.

25/3 = 8.3333 + 1.00 ea = 9.3333

9.3333 x 3 = 27.9999 so we'll say 28

28 + 2 = 30

a total backwards a&& way to figure it out. I'm going to look stupid when some explains it right. But at least I'm not cheap which is what you would be if you only tip 10%. I say make it an even $30 and then go home and get more drunk : )
